It's currently 33 degrees in England, definite heatwave sweeping through. A couple of weeks ago I was in Northumberland and Newcastle area visiting my boyfriends family. It was really lovely, and then last week we both did a road trip to Switzerland. I also finished at my old job just prior to this, as I will be starting working in emergency and critical care. So lots going on recently! 

But the above photos are from a trip to the top of Mount Pilatus, above lake Lucerne in Switzerland. It was incredible. We took the steepest cogwheel train in the world up there - approximately a 40 minute trip, which is very scenic and relaxing. We stayed the night at the hotel there, and the dinner and breakfast was incredible so I would highly recommend doing that if you can. There are a lot of visitors, particularly if the weather is good. After 5pm in the evening, it's only the hotel staff and guests who are up there, as the last cable car and cogwheel trains have gone down. 


I wore this tweed dress for dinner, which was perfect - although taking those photos wasn't the easiest, it was freezing in the evening! I was only able to pack a small backpack, as we had planned to explore Lucerne the next day, prior to heading back to Basel which is where we were staying. This is why I wore ballet flats during the day and for dinner! It worked because we weren't planning to do any proper hiking, just explore the surrounding area of the hotel and take in the views. We are thinking of going back and actually hiking to the top one day, but we'll see. I'd need to start by buying hiking boots... 


Starting training for my new job next week, it will be online so I am looking forward to spending more time in my new home - since I moved. I started by commuting to my old job during the lockdown, which meant the move has been very gradual. 


I hope you enjoyed this post, quite a chatty one! I have also been sharing lots on instagram (@stilettointhecloud) and stories.
